three days after the election? and did he insult the tea party? >> we don't have a tea party caucus to speak of in the house. >> a leader of that movement will be here to respond. >> i have invited leaders of both parties to the white house next week so we can start to build consensus around the challenges that we can only solve together. >> the fiscal cliff showdown heating up will democrats and republicans find common ground? we'll have a special report. >> nobody is surprised, right, that people are already starting to talk about the next republic ticket. marco rubleio, i think, has planned a trip to iowa. >> laura: it's already starting. rising g.o.p. star marco rubio's trip to iowa fueling 2016 speculation. mike huck huckabee with analysis. caution, you are about to enter the no spin zone and the factor begins right now. _ hi, everyone, i'm laura ingraham in for bill o'reilly. thanks for watching us tonight. we'll have the talking points memo in the next segment. but, first, our top story breaking news, the sudden resignation of cia chief david petraeus. the director of the spy
was real. though the timing is perhaps, perhaps suspect. one week ago. six days before the u.s. election. national security correspondent jennifer griffin is following this breaking story from the pentagon. >> reporter: at 4:50 a.m. november 1, days before the u.s. presidential election, two iranian su-25 frog foot fighter jets like these intercepted and fired twice upon an unmanned, unarmed u.s. m-2-1 predator drone over the persian gulf. it's the first time the iranians ever fired on a u.s. drone. the shots missed on both attempted. iran's fighter pilots briefly pursued the drone that landed safely at an undisclosed location. >> incident occurred over international waters. 16 nautical miles off the coastline. aircraft was never in iranian air space. it was always flying in international air space. the internationally recognized territorial limit is 12 nautical miles off the coast. we never entered the 12 nautical mile limit. >> asked whether the incident was an act of war, the pentagon spokesman said he would not legally label it. adding the state department had protested through the s
guy who really masterminded so much of what we did in this election. he did such a great job as campaign manager, and he will go into more granular detail in what he saw as the results on tuesday. here is jim messina. >> hello, everyone, good to be with you. i want to start out by congratulating team romney for a hard-fought campaign. they were hard-working americans who wanted to make the country better and use the political process to do that. we wish them sleep and some time with family. i want to congratulate all the volunteers for what they did on election day. we had over 109,000 people canvassing on doors, double that on the phones, and they executed a historic ground game. the reason they were motivated to do this it was not because of any analytical tools or tech product that we gave them. they were working to build this campaign because they believe in barack obama and his message and the policy he moved forward -- to move this country forward. that is what won in this election. across battleground states, we are currently sitting at 50.4. i think we will get a litt
to have moved slightly to the democrats, so that if you have a kind of normal base election, the democrats have a very slight advantage. i think most people say we will continue to grow over time, unless the republicans do something to make inroads into some of the court demographics. if you look at the house races, you have to be cautious because the -- about the big message you are drawing. yes, the democrats gained what looks to me by my count about eight house seats. half their gains have to do with coming from illinois and california and are largely redistricting gains. but republican still control the house. what would you say was the democrats' message this election cycle, in terms of the issues are policy? they talked about republican extremism but, what is the strong message that the congressional level? it was two-pronged. one, medicare, and two, the ryan budget. medicare is one of the examples , and the right and budget shows different priorities, and republican parties are wrong. that message did not really .orke it was not a decisive win, certainly at the house level, for that
. >> and a few moments, president obama'seens your campaign staff talks about election results. and have delmar, more about the election from political analysts charlie cook and stu rothenberg. then senator chuck schumer on the agenda for the upcoming lame duck session of congress. >> he does rolled himself out. he has taken 10 tablets. >> that is ridiculous. >> at some point he could stop breathing. >> where is sgt robert gates today? >> we ended up following him after this plane ride for many and he ended up injuring himself into an innovative program at walter reed, where they ended up using acupuncture, medication, and other techniques to wean him of all the drugs he was on, and for this program he actually was able to walk out of walter reed on his own 2 feet. i really commend the military for allowing us to tell the story, both the good and the bad, but for recognizing the problem, that there is the problem of over medication, and that they are looking for outside the box ideas on how to fix it. that is sort of the whole basis of the film, the status quo is not working and we need to star
] >> you bet. megyn: well, president obama may have won re-election, but we still don't know much, know by how much. that is because they are still counting the ballots down in florida. as of this morning just six-tenths of a percentage point separated the president and governor romney. most of the remaining ballots are from miami-dade county because there was a last minute wave of absentee ballots that have yet to be processed. if the president wins florida, it will increase his electoral count but not change the outcome of the election. after months of campaigning and hundreds of thousands of phone calls, washington looks very much the same. next hour, the same. how many segments, how many dollars, how many discussions? the same. next hour we're going to speak to karl rove to explain what he really thinks happened on tuesday. how did the republicans lose? and we will get his thoughts on that a couple days after. ♪ megyn: a major setback today for millions in the northeast still recovering from the last week's devastating hurricane sandy. powerful winds, rain and snow -- i mean, it w
these developments has been managed, and if so, to what purpose. today two days after the president's election, we learned that two iranian fighter jets, like this one, attacked one of our unmanned an unarmed predator drones. that attack took place 16 miles off the coast of kuwait in international airspace. happened last thursday, but an administration official has remained silent until today. today we learned that boeing will be slashing another 10 percent of management jobs in its defense division by the end of thii year in an effort to cut more than $2 billion in costs. boeing says it cannot project exactly how many workers will lose their jobs as a result. and boeing is going to some great lengths to insist that these layoffs have nothing to do whatsoever with the sequestered defense cuts set to take place next year. you will recall that less than two months ago the obama white house was so intent on avoiding publicity like this it offered to indemnify government contractors for losses and find if they held off on issuing left notices. that is required by the warrant act until after the electi
now that the election is over. the list includes huge issues like taxes, the deficit, headline making overseas trip and a possible shakeup of his cabinet. let's get right to our chief white house correspondent jessica yellin. she's been doing some reporting. jessica, what are you learning? >> reporter: hi, wolf. first the reports that the president is going to be delivering a major speech on the economy or on the fiscal cliff are simply not true. no big speech planned for the coming days. the second piece -- i'll add to that that the president's team believes that they have laid out pretty clearly where the president stands on deficit reduction and how to avoid the fiscal cliff. and the next move now is for the republicans to say where they stand, what they're willing to give and to let negotiations take place to make some progress. the second piece, wolf, of news is pund its have been saying that the president was low on specifics in this campaign and may be true he didn't offer much by the way of detail, but he did outline an agenda. and here it is. while the details may be sparse,
the agenda, the day after being elected the nice time. is the republican leadership going to play ball with him this time? >> there's no doubt the president is in the driver's seat, and he hold the cards and leverage, and conservatives don't have much from which they can negotiate. i don't know if the speaker of the house has the vote to give the president what he wants, which is tax increases on high income earners, but they will have to take the vote to show one way or the other. i think there is some sort of patchy deal put together at the last minute. i think house republicans can work with the president. but on other issues going forward, if the white house shows leadership, they've been disengaged on this issue until now, so it will be a welcomed change to see the white house get involved. >> it seems the way the republican base is narrowed, they don't have that much left besides the resistance to tax cuts in terms of securing that base. so if they were to yield on that one core issue, they would be an even more trouble than they are this week. and if they don't yield, then i don
can find the common ground necessary. bill: that's the same potion had the weekend before the election. meanwhile there are strong warning the fiscal cliff could have dire consequences. lay out the stakes here. what are they? >> according to the congressional budget office, the bean counters in congress, they say recession. if you cut spending and raise taxes as is planned january 1 you get a recession and a 1.9% -- you get a 9.1% unemployment rate next year. the republicans are saying do not raise tax rates. the democrats are saying, president obama and harry reid are saying tax the rich, raise tax rates. this is all about tax rates. the democrats led by president obama and harry reid, president obama will speak later today. their firm position for many years has been tax the rich. bill: what boehner is arguing you can find other sources of revenue by reforming the tax system. what does boehner get if he cuts a deal. >> if he cuts a deal and agrees to some kind of compromise where we do raise tax rates on the rich. there are two things may get in return. more spending cuts. at least t
no longer the vice presidential candidate that will never be president. >> i know the election was a long time ago. >> one full week since election day. >> i wanted to refresh everyone's memories. >> we made this campaign about big ideas and big issues. >> big issues. >> just wasn't enough at the end of the day. >> that lost. >> they lost. >> this was a real shellacking. >> losing never feels good. >> we were surprised at the outcome. >> what are the lessons for conservatives? >> the primary problem is an economic message. >> the problem is. >> a demographic problem. >> disrespecting women the last two years. >> we were surprised in the outcome. the president won the race, i congratulated him on the race. >> the republican party needs to get it together. >> the hard part is where you get there. >> congress returns for lame duck session. >> back from recess with a daunting task. >> to avert the fiscal cliff. >> the issue is taxes. >> the bush era tax cuts. >> i refuse to accept any approach that isn't balanced. the majority of americans agree with my approach. >> have a little swag. >> tha
the lessons of that loss isn't good either. at his core this election was about fairness, giving, everyone a fair shot. congressman ryan doesn't -- he doesn't get it. >> was this a referendum on your budget plan, do you think? >> i don't think we lost it on those budget issues. i think people, especially on medicare, we clearly didn't lose it on those issues. >> they did lose on those issues. budget, taxes, medicare. that's what this election was all about. during the campaign paul ryan himself said so. >> i bet they'll talk about medicare. i'm excited about this debate. we want this debate. we need this debate and we're going to win this debate about medicare. >> we are offering big ideas. we are offering real solutions, real reforms for a real recovery. >> this is a debate we want to have. this is a debate we need to have. and this is a debate we're going to win. >> the country did have the debate and republicans lost in every battleground except one. today we saw what losing looks like. gop senate majority leader mitch mcconnell sat down with the three new republicans in the senate. the
. if the speaker didn't get the message of this election, what about the ever erudite commentator and fox news analyst ann coulter. >> if mitt romney cannot win in this economy, then the tipping point has been reached. we have more takers than makers and it's over. >> of course it might equally be said that deriding 47% of the population as feckless freeloaders may be the reason why, as you say, it's now over. let's get right to our panel. here in new york, msnbc political analyst david corn, ana marie cox, correspondent for "the guardian" and msnbc contributor jared bernsteinbern senior fellow and former economist for vice president joe biden. david, we have had the makers and takers, the moochers and smoochers, the backers and the slackers, the fakers and the bakers but according to miss coulter it's the parasites who won. >> yes. i think if the republican party wants to take her advice, which they have always been so good at and just continue to deride 47%, 48%, 49%, 50%, 51%, 52%, they can do that and not look at the changing demographics. there was a key fact that david axelrod and david
with chuck todd." >>> after climbing the re-election mountain, president obama sets his sites on avoiding the fiscal cliff. if h in a few hours he will tell the country how he plans to make that happen but will he find enough allieses on capitol hill to do it? >>> the answer to that question is in the hands of house speaker john boehner who is offering an candid take on tuesday's results. it might be causing more republican hand wringing to opening the door to deal making. >>> and the british are coming. what president obama and prime minister cameron can do together to get the global economy on track and resolve serious situations like syria. >>> good morning from washington. it's friday, november 9th, 2012. this is "the daily rundown" i'm chuck todd. let's get right to my first reads in the morning. at 11:00, in the white house east room the president will speak to the nation for the first time since his election about what he hopes to accomplish before the end of the year. before taking on the new challenges though the president changed his campaign workers this emotional video from we
after election day. what do voters' thoughts and some key questions tell us where the two parties are about where the country is moving on some serious policy issues? we'll show you the not so obvious differences between the swing states and the national averages. those numbers in today's deep dive. autopsy 2012. >>> also this hour, we're going to hear live from maine's independent senator elect, angus king, about which party he plans to caucus with in the senate. he has to make that decision. pretty obvious where he's going but he's creating some drama anyway. and then we're counting down to nancy pelosi's big announcement about her future. will she step aside as the top democrat in the house? we will learn that this hour. >>> good morning from washington. it's wednesday, november 14, 2012. this is "the daily rundown." i'm chuck todd. let's get right to my first reads of the morning. the president holds his first news conference today, since august. what was supposed to be a re-election victory lap and a way to -- an opportunity to press for his vision on a deficit reduction deal
about this prior to the election. the question is when did when and who in the white house knew about this. but, it looks like a case where the director may have held this together until just days after the election to avoid creating a major news story and disruption in the middle of an election cycle. >> what about the whens and the whos in terms of the white house? when did they find out? and who was it that found out? >> right. well white house officials insist that they did not learn about that david petraeus had a big problem on his hands until wednesday. and then that petraeus sought a meeting with the president, comes to meet with the president, lays this all out, says he intends to resign and it's not until thursday that obama accepts that decision. or friday, i should say. but, this is -- if there were any national security implications of this fbi investigation into the e-mail, then that would have required some prior notification of somebody in the white house. i mean, if there's a -- if your cia director is in a situation that is creating a national security issue, then th
stepped in to clarify the situation. as for governor romney, he may have lost the election but victory will always be spelled m.i.t. on the "ridiculist." that does it for us. thanks for watching. "early start" begins now. >>> i'm really proud of them. i'm really proud of them. and -- >> raw emotion. the leader of the free world sheds a tear as he talks, with pride, about his campaign. >> a tear or two. secrets spilled. the leak may be sealed giving up classified information for money to the makers of a video game. >> and worldwide inspiration. a new look at the pakistani teen who stood up to the taliban, and almost paid with her life. good morning, everyone. welcome to "early start," i'm john berman. >> and i'm zoraida sambolin. nice to have you with us this morning. it's 5:00 a.m. in the east. up first, 63 days and counting until we head to the fiscal cliff. if these two men cannot find a way to compromise the impact on the economy could be catastrophic. president obama delivers a big economic speech in about eight hours, and he wants tax cuts for the wealthy to extire. house speaker
and the drone landed safely soon after at an undisclosed election. the iranian jets pursued the drone after firing the shots according to george little, pentagon spokesman. >> it was conducting routine surveillance was intercepted by iranian aircraft and fired upon. with guns. this occurred over international waters approximately 15 nautical miles off the iran coastline. it was not hit. >> the predator was operating in international waters 16 miley ms off the iran coast, near the persian gulf. 12 miles remitting international airspace. when asked why this was not revealed before in the days before the u.s. election he said the predator was on a "classified mission" adding the united states reached out by the state department and the swiss protective powers. when asked if it should be considered an act of war, george little would not get into legal characterizations of the event. >>shepard: for more reaction to the latest act of aggression from iran we will speak with a former intelligence officer coming up next. and syria's president bashar al-assad's defiant message about his future.

was the message of the election. leaders of both parties give us their take on that yesterday. we want to turn to all of you. your vote, your message to washington. we began with the front page of ."sa today, this is what richard wolf writes. the two sites listed no time sticking out their positions on the potential crisis that is 54 days away. this is what the two leaders had to say yesterday. we will start with harry reid and move on to john boehner. [video clip] >> they are tired of partisan gridlock. i have one goal, to be obama. obama was reelected overwhelmingly. republicans want us to work together. democrats want us to work together. they want to reach a balanced approach to everything, but especially the situation we have with the huge deficit. taxes are a part of that. >> the american people have spoken. they have reelected president obama, and every elected a republican majority. if there was a mandate, it is a mandate for us to find a way to work together on the solutions to the challenges we all face as a nation. my message today is not one of confrontation, but one of conviction.
to get the president re-elect and they're now hoping to shape his second term agenda. afl-cio, afscme, the sciu and the national education association were all there as were the heads of progressive groups including the center for american progress and moveon.org. they seemed pleased with the results. here's afl-cio president richard tromka after the meeting. >> we want to make sure we don't end up paying the tab for a party we didn't get to go to. the president is committed to that as well. >> jennifer: jay carney and harry reid both echoed his comments calling for raising taxes on the wealthiest to spare the middle class. that, of course, is the same position that helped get the president re-elected but senate minority leader mitch mcconnell surprised no one by disputing the idea that any mandate exists on this issue saying "if the president truly realizes that he was elected to represent all of its citizens, not just the ones who voted to give him a second term last tuesday, then he will seek the common gr
the election is behind us, and it's time to confront the fiscal cliff, or as we at "the cycle" call it until we invent poetic phrasing, the gradual fiscal slope. whatever you want to call it, it's staring you in the face. two hours ago the president flanked by middle class taxpayers said this in the white house east room. >> the american people voted for action, not politics as usual. our job now is to get the majority of congress to reflect the will of the american people. what the american people are looking for is cooperation. they're looking for consensus. they're looking for common sense. most of all, they want action. >> the president has invited congressional leaders to the white house next week to start negotiations. he's made it clear that the election is a message that the people won't compromise. >> i intend to work with both parties to do more. i'm not wedded to every detail of my plan. i'm open to compromise. i'm open to new ideas. but i refuse to accept any approach that isn't balanced. but, as i've said before, we can't just cut our way to prosperity. if we're serious about reduc
obama will be holding his first news conference in eight months. the first since his re-election. reporters are likely going to be asking about a lot more than the fiscal cliff, as important as that is, be now that the president's national security team is coping with an expanding scandal. congress drilling down on the investigation into benghazi. joining me from the white house, chuck todd, chief white house correspondent, be host of "the daily run down request" and enjoying a front row seat. >> as you point out the hoping statement will be about the fiscal cliff. the whole point of this press conference was about setting, you know, this was their intention, right. about setting sort of the parameters of the public debate where they are on fiscal cliff. but, of course, we haven't questioned him in over eight months. questions about benghazi, questions about the petraeus thing, how did the fbi, is the president pleased with, seems there's a little pattern here of it seems to take a while for certain information to get to the white house a little bit, how -- what is his reaction t
. the election is over. now it's time to get to work. >> so talk, soledad, of working to the. but you might say speaker boehner has said tax rates for the wealthy can't go up. they're at 35% right now. they're scheduled to go up above 39% by the end of the year. then you say president obama said he will veto anything that does not increase tax rates on wealthy americans. you wonder where is the middle ground there? the middle ground, it appears, and we don't know the details on this, would be moving towards a framework on tax reform. you know right now, even a lot of people who might fall under that 35% tax rate, income bracket, they don't pay that. that's not their effective rate. so if you simplify the tax code. maybe some of the change comes out in the wash. you could actually increase revenue. increase tax dollars without changing that tax rate. we don't know the details, though. and they really have to be worked out and this week is really the start of that process. >> the sound of that ticking would be the clock of the fiscal cliff clock that we're monitoring because it all comes to an en
